Goofs

Emily refuse to be an eagle like Joe because they "eat bunny rabbits" and she's a vegetarian (and in her next life too) and hints that she would rather be a dragonfly. Dragonflies are predatory insects that feed mainly on mosquitoes, flies and bees. See more »

Why Dark Knight rate 9 and Dragonfly only 6 ?
26 August 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I don't want to speak about this lovely movie too much. The story is simple, but the actors and the acting are great. The ending is surprising in a good way and the atmosphere of the film is very well realized.

I write this review because I wonder how low is the medium IQ of the regular voters on IMDb ? How can they rate a idiotic movie like Dark Knight 9, ranking the 10th movie of all times !!!, and a decent film like this only 6 ? Maybe because there are no special effects , no lame actor died shortly after filming, and the romance is no more appreciated.

Few years ago you can rely on the IMDb ranking, but now you can miss many good movies and go see a lot of rubbish, if you consider the vote from present site.

If you are a little bit romantic, see this film, you will like it.
